I don't know about you but I hate dust. It's easy to clean but it's never ending and requires constant combating. Dust is a mortal enemy to gaming devices so lets talk about how to slay the beast. If I had a nickle for every console dust cover I owned I'd have .40 cents. Console covers are a great way to reduce dust or any other foreign debris into your devices. They're relatively low cost and very effective. Some sellers on eBay even stamp the covers with colored logos of your favorite systems adding a little flair to your collection.
Dust... how I hate thee
  • I don't know about you but I hate dust. It's easy to clean but it's never ending and requires constant combating. Dust is a mortal enemy to gaming devices so lets talk about how to slay the beast.

  • If I had a nickle for every console dust cover I owned I'd have .40 cents. Console covers are a great way to reduce dust or any other foreign debris into your devices. They're relatively low cost and very effective. Some sellers on eBay even stamp the covers with colored logos of your favorite systems adding a little flair to your collection.

  • Personally I prefer Foamy Lizards cover for my Xbox 1 and if they were still in production I'd grab one for my 360E. The benefits of Foamy Lizard over the competition is 1) their covers are form fitting to the devices they're made for and 2) they come precut to account for the cables protruding from the back of the console. Again, not sponsored.

  • Foamy Lizards line of products aren't designed for retro consoles however so here's a few other places to find what you need:

  • https://www.digitaldeckcovers.com has a WIDE variety of dust covers for all sorts of electronics.

  • Their console covers aren't quite as snug on the system which means there's a higher chance of dust entering the device but it would have to be kicked up with a breeze. The only way for it to enter is from underneath. This isn't a major issue by any means and they still provide a quality product. I do have 2 issues with their covers and they are:

  • 1) they put their brand name on the front of the cover. This is a personal discrepancy, it does not hinder the function in anyway. It's just not as uniform as a solid black cover. Plus, I don't get paid for displaying their cover so I could do without the writing. However, I dislike dust even more than this so I can live with it. 2) their covers

  • don't account for cables which means unless you cut the cover you'll have to plug/unplug your wires every time you want to play or cover the device. Again, not a major issue. Just take some scissors and cut the fabric out where your cables plugin.
